All are Welcome!


The Community kirtan program is inspired by the need for communities to have regular, affordable and accessible kirtan at a consistent time and location.  Call and Response Foundation works in partnership with community leaders to secure and underwrite a venue for regular events.  Events are scheduled and managed by community volunteers, and are run on a donation basis.  Leaders are sourced from the local community and share in any proceeds donated.  The program is now running successfully in 7 cities in the USA with plans to expand to Canada and other US locations.  For more info on how to bring this program to your hometown contact

“A man from India named Ashish came to our kirtan about 6 months ago and soon was coming every week. He really melded with the group and always participated in satsang. A few weeks ago he moved back to India. So last week we hooked up a live feed of the kirtan and he watched it and chanted along. I believe he said it was early in the morning there, and was going to round up friends to start their day chanting with us this week. What a strange and wonderful world when people from India are tuning in to our simple little kirtan here!

To think of how Kirtan started in Indian villages and now is a world wide movement that feeds back around to it’s homeland is such a swet reminder of the power of divine Love:-)”

“Our Community Kirtan has a growing sense of the divine in our little urban hotspot. It just naturally blossoms from the kirtan practice!”
